My Gap Year in South East Asia

Are you at the stage in life when the once seemingly infinite hours of study in college or university have done the unthinkable and ended, and you’re now thinking: “What’s next?”? Fear not. There’s a whole world out there waiting for you. BUNAC’s awesome team member Ellie embarked on an incredible gap year to South East Asia – check out her life changing experiences.

After finishing my A-levels I found myself in this exact position. After some research I decided that taking a gap year would allow me to live out my travelling dreams, whilst gaining valuable experiences and giving me time to decide what I wanted to do with my future. I chose to visit Thailand and Vietnam and was not disappointed. From glorious food, white-sand beaches and cities steeped in history, these countries provided an adventure far better than I imagined. I’ve rounded up just some of my most memorable places in these beautiful countries.
